Cameron Esposito

Cameron Esposito (she/they) is a Los Angeles-based standup comic, actor, writer, and host.

In addition to her work as a nationally-touring headliner, Cameron has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, Comedy Central, TBS, IFC, E!, Cartoon Network and HBO Canada. Recently, she recurred as ‘Greta’ in 21 episodes of ABC’s A Million Little Things, as well as roles on The Rookie: Feds, Station 19, and Amazon’s With Love. In 2022, Cameron hosted the 2nd Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards, AMC’s Obsessed With the Vampire, and live conferences for LGBTQ+ rights organizations Lesbians Who Tech and National Center for Lesbian Rights. Last year, Cameron completed a social media endorsement campaign with WILDFANG and was the face of the SKITTLES Pride Campaign to promote LGBTQ+ artists and stories in partnership with GLAAD rights organization (for which she also hosted their awards show in 2017), Audible, and her podcast QUEERY. QUEERY features a series of hour-long conversations with some of the brightest luminaries in the LGBTQ+ covering themes of identity and the shifting cultural matrix around gender/sexuality. Additionally, Cameron can be heard giving semi-sarcastic survival advice as the host of Sony Music’s podcast SURVIVE OR DIE TRYING. In 2021, Cameron served as the inaugural host for the Podcast Academy’s annual award show: The Ambies. Cameron was honored with a 2023 Courage Award from the New York City Anti-Violence Project.

Cameron is currently developing her new comedy-hybrid special alongside W. Kamau Bell, which follows her mental health journey. Her 2018 special “Rape Jokes” raised over $100,000 for RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, by releasing the special for free and encouraging viewers to donate in lieu of subscribing and watching on a streaming service. The self-financed hour has been praised as “unapologetically hard-hitting, bracingly timely hour” (Vanity Fair), “blistering, masterful, tragic, hilarious” (New York Magazine). A writer from the The Daily Beast who happened to be in the audience hailed the set as “powerful,” “daring and hilarious,” and as “the first great stand-up set of the #metoo era.”

In March 2020, Cameron released her first-ever book, “Save Yourself,” a memoir that tackles sexuality, gender and equality – and how her Catholic upbringing prepared her for a career as an outspoken lesbian comedian in ways the Pope never could have imagined. The book, published by Grand Central Publishing became an instant best seller.

She has been named a Comic to Watch by The New York Times, Variety, The Guardian, LA Weekly, Time Out Los Angeles, Jezebel, Los Angeles Magazine and Cosmopolitan
